NBA's Lamar Odom arrested for DUI in Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES -- Basketball star Lamar Odom was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence early Friday after a California Highway Patrol officer saw his white Mercedes-Benz traveling erratically on a San Fernando Valley Freeway.
The husband of reality TV star Khloe Kardashian was stopped shortly before 4 a.m. and was arrested after a field sobriety test.
The CHP said Odom's car was observed traveling in a "serpentine manner" before he pulled off the freeway.
"Mr. Odom showed objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform field sobriety tests," the CHP said in a report. Authorities said he later declined to take a chemical test.
Odom, 33, was booked for investigation of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and jailed on $15,000 bail.
He was released Friday morning after posting bail.
A message for his agent, Jeff Schwartz, wasn't immediately returned.
Odom broke into the NBA with the Clippers in 1999, playing for them for four seasons before spending the 2003-04 season with the Heat.
He had his best years during his six seasons with the Lakers, beginning in 2004-05. The team won NBA championships in 2010 and 2011 and Odom won the NBA's sixth man award in 2011.
After spending the 2012 season with the Dallas Mavericks, he returned to the Clippers last year. He became a free agent at the end of the season.
